Re: Overview of QL SD / CF Solutions

You might want to add that all image file solutions (vDrive, HxE) are size-limited to floppy (or mdv) sizes, although you can have more than one image on the media. QL-SD and QubIDE derivatives support a hard-disk-like usage, while vDrive and HxE are a bit less convenient - You will often need to sw...

Re: QDOS gcc made easy (docker stylee)

Is it possible to have the object file QL executable header? Not easily - There's no way to store a QL file header anywhere on a foreign file system (other than, maybe, using the Q-Emulator method, which makes the file un-usable on native boxes). Your method to re-create the header on an Emulator w...

Re: Cross-Chase

On most platforms I know (Windows is none of them), Docker can be told to use (mount) a local directory by a configuration dialog. This is where your source could should be, I guess.

Re: Request for advice: programming a TASK (not a JOB) in C68...

Norm, I was actually thinking of providing some articles on some QL subjects to your always excellent fish-wrap :shock: , but never found the time to actually come around and write up something useful. I promise I'll keep on thinking about it ;) In earnest: Yes, I'd be glad to write something (maybe...

Re: World Cup 2018 Including Patio Chair Sweepstakes

I was about to call out for Winston Churchill, Queen Victoria, William Shakespeare and especially the Monty Pythons, ... but....

Re: Request for advice: programming a TASK (not a JOB) in C68...

In Tebby-speak, a task is a piece of code which is called by an interrupt, the poll timer routines or the scheduler loop - Typically part of a device driver. If that's what you want to write, it is perfectly possible to do that (I have been writing a device driver in C68 for a while now, and it work...

Re: WTD: UK layout USB keyboard

One thing that has come out of this: the discussion of where we might insert a Euro symbol into the QL ASCII map? That discussion has already ended: SMSQ/E puts the € character at CHR$(181) The key combination associated with that character is <CTRL><SHIFT>U. I don't see a point in changing this. T...
